An All New Episode Of Insights Airs Wednesday @ 2PM
Parker Millsap: At 26 years of age, Oklahoma native Parker Millsap is quickly making a name for himself with his captivating live performances, soulful sound, and character-driven narratives. He’s had a string of highlights in recent years including his network television debut on CONAN, a performance with Elton John at the Apple Music Festival in London, an Austin City Limitstaping and an Americana Music Association nomination for Album of the Year. He has also received praise from The New York Times, The Boston Globe, LA Times, Austin Chronicle and Rolling Stoneto name a few. He first picked up an acoustic guitar at nine, then plugged in and went electric after getting into Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, eventually starting a cover band with classmate, Michael Rose who still plays bass with him today. Over the years he recruited musicians Daniel Foulks (fiddle) and Andrew Bones (Drums) to join his band. Parker’s newest album, Other Arrangements,finds him taking bold steps in new directions.
Alice Wallace: “It’s a song about taking the risk to do what you love,” Alice Wallace says of the soaring track, “The Blue,” which yields a lyric entitling her spellbinding new album. With Into the Blue, the California-country singer-songwriter conjures the atmospheric sound of the Golden State’s canyons and deserts, mountains and crashing waves, its crowning beauty and its tragic losses. At the same time, the supple-voiced Wallace tells her own and others’ stories, weaving tales that resonate as we grapple with so many disturbing national issues. Into the Blue represents Wallace’s evolution as a recording artist, showcasing her growth as a songwriter as she embraces a fuller sound, backed by some of Americana’s most distinctive players.
Pony Bradshaw: Pony Bradshaw is the songwriting project of James Bradshaw. A southern Rimbaud, the nomadic Bradshaw grew up drifting due to his father¹s career in the military. He continued that drifting most of his life, but for the past decade has called North Georgia home. On his debut album, Sudden Opera, there seems to be no fear of being lush or sparse, dense or loose. Space is welcomed along with high drama. His songs are the nomads now. Inspired more by the 19th century French novelists, poets and painters than modern troubadours and pulp fiction, Bradshaw seems to be looking to make a new way for himself; a way that is not dictated by trend or time.
DittyTV Concert Series Featuring Trout Steak Revival
Sunday @ 8PM
Tune in for the DittyTV Concert Series featuring a Bluegrass-inspired Americana band from Denver, Colorado called Trout Steak Revival. They’re a 5-piece group which you’ll see trading songs within the band, like each person is a contributing songwriter. The tunes tend be thoughtful, reflective, hopeful, and all-around worthwhile. You can tell they’re proud of their Colorado bluegrass roots, which have inspired several full-length albums, including 2017’s Spirit to the Sea. It’s pretty serene, free-spirited, innovative – everything people have come to love about Colorado string-bands.
